Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Pedestrian Accidents

Most places in the United States are designed for automobiles, leaving pedestrians as an afterthought. Roads may not have sidewalks, marked pedestrian crosswalks, or adequate lighting or signals to allow pedestrians to be seen. Drivers who rarely see pedestrians may not look closely before making a turn, and distractions like smartphones can cause a driver or pedestrian to make a dangerous mistake. The risk to pedestrians is also increasing as Americans buy increasing numbers of large trucks and SUVs, which are more likely to kill or seriously injure a pedestrian than smaller cars.

Crashes Where Pedestrians are Injured Happen All the Time

In 2022, there were 2,026 pedestrians involved in motor vehicle crashes in Michigan, and 173 of those people lost their lives. Crossing at an intersection causes the most crashes by far, but crossing the road not at an intersection causes the most fatalities. Kent County has the third highest number of crashes, but is a bit better – ninth – for fatalities when pedestrians are involved.
